Ovarian Cancer has Symptoms

Primary Symptoms:

  • Bloating or swollen abdomen or midsection
  • Pain or pressure in the abdomen or pelvis
  • Decreased appetite or feeling full quickly
  • Urgency or frequency of urination
  • Constipation or diarrhea; changes in bowel movements

Secondary Symptoms:

  • Unusual fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Unexplained weight gain or loss
  • Menstrual irregularities or bleeding after menopause

These symptoms are subtle, often advance slowly and mimic those of many common conditions such as gastrointestinal diseases, urinary tract infections, menopause or other gynecologic issues. If you believe your symptoms might be ovarian cancer, report them to your medical provider before the disease affects other organs and becomes acute.

When the symptoms occur in combination with each other and do not resolve within two weeks, please seek immediate medical attention.
